I was so proud of Big E on this hike. As a 3 1/2 year old with short legs I did not expect him to hike so well for so long. We took off toward Stewart Falls first thing in the morning and enjoyed wildflowers, warm weather and a bubbling brook for our trouble. Little g was in the hiking pack for the first time and only complained when I stopped moving.
I’ve noticed that hiking with Big E is most successful with a destination involving water. Most of the posts on this blog involve Big E throwing something into water. What can I say? There’s something magical in watching and listening to water. Even though we didn’t make it all the way to Stewart Falls the water flowing down the mountain from the falls was enough of a distraction for this little guy. The beautiful mountains, green meadow dotted with wildflowers and warm sun on my face was enough for me. What a beautiful world.
